5: The key to learning a new sport as an adult with Ali Stead

At 24 years old, Ali Stead had never skated before.

That didn’t stop her from becoming a hockey player, though.

Clinging to the boards to prevent herself from falling, she took her first steps on the ice and hasn’t looked back since. Now, she’s improved so much, you’d never know she hasn’t been playing her entire life (and her training views aren’t bad either).

In episode 5 of the her Soul Shot Podcast, Ali shares her journey of learning to play ice hockey, crucial advice she’s learned along the way, and how creating her Instagram account to document her journey has been one of the keys to her success (and an incredible way to inspire others).

Whether you want to take up hockey, learn a new sport, or get out of your comfort zone—this episode with Ali is a must-listen!
